Event Details

Friday, September 14, 2018

Terrace, Memorial Union
One of the newer faces in Puerto Rico’s thriving salsa gorda (“fat salsa”) scene, Orquesta el Macabeo emphasizes the “gorda” part of the equation like few other bands do. At eleven members strong, the group showcases their love of punk and ska music in their high-octane performances, while still adhering to the rhythmic complexity, call and response melodies, and explosive brass sections that have come to define salsa gorda.
